Monkeypox scare: Odisha directs CDMOs to keep beds ready at DHHs

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

After WHO declared monkeypox a Public Health Emergency, Odisha Health Minister Naba Kishore Das called a high-level meeting to discuss the situation in the State. The meeting was chaired by Das and attended by officials from the Health Department.

According to the official reports, Das has written a letter to all the CDMOs of district headquarters hospitals. Das has called a meeting to review the monkeypox situation in the State. He has also directed all the CDMOs to prepare two beds in every District Headquarters Hospital, along with another review meeting on monkeypox on July 30.

“Like Covid-19, monkeypox is also a viral disease. So, we have to be prepared. We have kept the beds ready. People having any symptoms should immediately go for a check-up. There are at least 10 check-up labs across India. So, I will discuss all this in the review meeting on July 30. We also are keeping a close vigil on people coming from abroad,” he added.
